Top Gifts For Your Hairstylist  

As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to start making your shopping lists for the people you care about. Considering the important role that your hairstylist plays in your life, it’s nice to remember them during the holidays.

No matter your budget, you can show your appreciation with one of these top gifts for your hairstylist:

Gourmet Chocolates

When in doubt, always go with chocolates. This is an indulgent luxury that will allow your stylist to treat themselves quickly while they are working in the salon every day. Whether you opt for an assortment of truffles or a selection of milk, white, or dark chocolate, your hair stylist will appreciate this sinfully delicious gift.

A Holiday Bonus

It’s customary to provide your hairstylist with a tip after you have received a cut or color treatment. Generally, people give about 15-20 percent for a standard tip. During the holiday season, you might consider gifting your hairstylist with a bonus of sorts. Rather than giving your standard tip, you may want to double it for your December hair appointment. You also could include extra cash in a card with a handwritten note to your stylist. Certainly, during this busy and festive time of year, your stylist will appreciate your generosity.

Personalized Equipment

Hairstylists who work in a salon are constantly trying to keep track of their equipment. When you give them a personalized hair dryer or brush, no one else will try to inadvertently claim it as theirs. Other options for customized gifts include a monogrammed apron, a personalized pair of shears, or a custom hand mirror.

Gift Cards

Gift cards are a thoughtful and practical gift that will allow your hairstylist to treat themselves to something that they enjoy. Gift cards to coffee shops, local restaurants, movie theaters, and bookstores are a few options to consider.

Tote Bag

Many hairstylists bring their equipment to and from the salon each day, and others actually take their hair services on the road. No matter what type of role your stylist has, there’s a good chance that they could use a sturdy, functional tote bag. Opt for one with lots of pockets as well as plenty of room.

Your hairstylist is sure to consider any gift thoughtful and generous, and they simply will appreciate being remembered during the holiday season. As you decide on the right gift for your hairstylist, be sure to consider their own personality and preferences. It’s sure to bring a smile to your stylist’s face during this festive time of year.
